"First class self-catering experience at the ideal location."
When I booked the Grassmarket #1 apartment for the first time last year for a long weekend stay it seemed too ideal to be true for the price. I was really pleased to find it better than expected. The view is the most obvious USP (it's like an album cover photo standing at the living room window) But the apartment itself is as good as it gets for a single guest like me who needs to be in the heart of the old town. It's furnished very sparely-if you need 'homely' and traditional then it's maybe not for you. But for me it's ideal. Making the booking was made easy-I've since become a regular customer.

"A servicable apartment very handily placed with a magnificent view of the castle."
We have stayed twice at this apartment during the Edinburgh Festival and have booked again for next. It is on Grassmarket and couldn't be better placed for the festival locations - both Fringe and the main festival. But it is equally central for other Edinburgh sights. The apartment is small but clean with an attractive living room overlooking the castle. It is on the third floor with no lift but this does mean it is quiet.apart from the Tattoo fireworks!

We have stayed at this particular Apartment over numerous years. The Grassmarket Apartment is very cosy and has great views of Edinburgh Castle, from the living room and bedroom. We find the Apartment suits us really well, as it has all the mod-cons and therefore if you did not want to go out, it is the perfect place to relax and chill out. The Grassmarket Apartment is situated within the Grassmarket area and is in an ideal location, as it is situated within walking distance to Edinburgh Castle, Royal Mile and Greyfriars Graveyard etc. There are several pubs and restaurants within the Grassmarket area, which is great as you don't have to travel too far for evening entertainment.
We would definitely recommend this Apartment.
